Michigan implemented the 2015 Michigan Residential Code (MRC) on February 8th, 2016. This is the first update to Michigan’s residential code in over 6-years. Contractors, building officials, and suppliers are working hard to learn, understand, comply, enforce and profit from this new complex code.
Striving to support excellence and success of Michigan’s licensed mechanical contractors, the Michigan Air Conditioning Contractors Association (MIACCA) has designed and is offering a 2015 MRC Mechanical Code course to help position our current and future members to be successful in a new era of residential air conditioning in Michigan.
MIACCA is utilizing three of Michigan’s most respected licensed mechanical contractors to develop and offer a 3-hour 2015 MRC Mechanical Code course that will specifically cover provisions of the 2015 MRC that impact the HVAC mechanical trades. This comprehensive course covers relevant provisions in including Chapters 3 and 11-24 of the 2015 MRC.
MIACCA has assembled these experts in an attempt to provide the best information available for those seeking to understand three basic questions about the new code from a mechanical contractor’s perspective:
Designers & Instructors:
After completing this course, attendees will be able to visually identify the changed mechanical provisions contained within the 2015 MRC; specifically Part I Administrative Chapter 1, Part II Definitions Chapter 2, Part III Building Planning and Construction Chapter 3, Part IV Energy Conservation Chapter 11, Part V Mechanical chapters 12 – 23, and Part VI Fuel Gas Chapter 24, including plan review and field verification of areas of specialty.
Specific Learning Outcomes (Tasks):
Each attendee will receive a copy of the course PowerPoint handout along with a copy of MIACCA’s 2009 MRC to 2015 MRC Section by Section Crosswalk. This section by section crosswalk identifies the changes between these two codes, indicate the type of change, if that change in significant and shows what that change is in a single-reference source for mechanical contractors.
Each attendee will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the course.
All attendees are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to have a copy of the 2015 MRC code book to refer to during the class. Attendees can pre-order copies of the code book included in the course, or can purchase copies at the venue for $150.
